Weather Conditions in Jordan


Best Time to Visit Jordan

Planning to visit Jordan? Be sure to consider different climatic conditions, travel seasons and the activities they offer. You’re right to imagine a desert geography, but what you probably don’t know is that temperatures across this tiny and immensely beautiful nation are greatly affected by altitude. There’s the lowest point on earth in the Dead Sea, Petra or Wadi Rum in perfect Mediterranean weather, and higher topographical locations like Dana and Ajloun.

Spring in Jordan

From March to May, spring makes the desert bloom with wildflowers, and keeps other landscapes at their lushest best too. Even with the strong khamseen winds, this is the best time to visit Jordan — never too hot or cold, no rain and a soft sunshine that reflects beautifully against the desert shades. Naturally, this is peak tourist season so be prepared to share your views and visits with fellow travellers from around the world. This is the ideal time to trek or hike through the flourishing Wadi Rum region or experience the Dana to Petra journey.

Summer in Jordan

You would assume that the summers in such an environment don’t make this the best time to go to Jordan, but in reality, the country welcomes visitors all through the year. Jerash offers much cooler temperatures, abundant olive groves and a variety of ancient sites dating as far back as the 1st Century AD. Even in hotter areas like Amman or Aqaba, the heat doesn’t carry humidity, making it fairly tolerable. It helps to begin your sightseeing early in the morning and opt for an afternoon siesta just as the Jordanians do. In the month of July, you have the chance to witness the Jerash Festival — one of the biggest cultural celebrations in the country. As well as the one of the most alluring annual astrological events, the Perseid Meteor Shower, in the black of the clear summer skies. All of this, with the added advantage of off-season prices!

Autumn in Jordan

Another great season to be in Jordan — weather-wise or with regard to tourism. In typical before-the-first-rain weather, you could explore nature just as much as the historical sites. But most of all, this is the best time to travel to Jordan if you’re into or wish to learn diving. The Aqaba region has some of the most vibrant, visible coral reefs that are teeming with life. Enjoy your stay in Jordan during this time, hassle-free, by make your accommodations well in advance.

Jordan Winters

Along with the expected cold, winter season brings varied climate across Jordan, from rain or snow in Amman to the much warmer Aqaba. If you choose to visit now, then you’ll have the pleasure of exploring Jordan without too many other tourists. The Red Sea and Dead Sea areas stay comfortably warm throughout this time, so there’s still plenty to do.

Now, you’re a bit closer to deciding the best time to visit Jordan, and just a call to SOTC away from planning your adventure with their Jordan tour packages and other Africa tour packages.
